Joseph Gordon-Levitt Up for GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY? | Collider
Hmmm. Like JGL, especially after watching Looper, and I have no familiarity w/the source material...but I get the feeling this is going to be more swashbuckling/adventure-ish and I can't see him playing so light. Zach Levi could be a solid choice, would be nice to see Chuck make the leap to movies...seems a good guy.

Ok, clearly they are going for a light vibe on this one...Zach Levi, Rosenbaum...both very capable comic actors.

Oh...this is sad. I guess Snyder is getting spread too thin. I keep wanting to pick up the trades on this, but with a hiatus, I guess there's no hurry now. Not sure(ADGY???) but isn't this one of Vertigos last real high profile books? Man, DC has taken one of the greatest sidelines and just crippled it. I stopped reading Vertigo books a while back(too many obscure titles and crime type stuff) but at one point it could be argued that Vertigo was stronger than DC's regular comic line. Sad.
I know Snyder's got a new Vertigo mini-series coming up with Sean Murphy and that new Superman book with Jim Lee, but between this and him leaving Swamp Thing I can't help but worry a little. I guess as long as he doesn't leave Batman...

Another Way To Breathe - Über Announced
Very much looking forward to this.Quote:
It’s serious work. It’s obviously phenomenally violent. It’s written with the sense of moral outrage that WW2 has to provoke. I’m angry when I’m writing it. I can’t write about WW2 without being angry. Since I conceived it, I find myself thinking about reviewers who say I seem to be more interested in villains than heroes in my work. I suspect Über will provide more fuel for that particular argument.
As I said, I’ve tried to purge the majority of the tropes of the genre. This is a book that, if you run with its assumptions, takes itself seriously. It’s a book that is more concerned with large scale strategy and economic production. Technological advancement and R&D is key. The heroism tends to be desperate and futile. A tradition of the genre is that a weaker hero will overcome a stronger one. There’s none of that here, any more than a tank is anything but a target when a gunship pops over the horizon. It switches between those decisions between men poring over maps and the lives they’re ending as they push pieces around the board. As the size of the bible suggests, the world building is considerable and the plan is complete. I could end the series at any point by going into a documentary-style comic. While the title shows that the Wunderwaffen of the Germans precipitate the situation, this uses all the major players and all the major theatres. So far I’ve written everyone from Churchill to Hitler, from Guderian to Turing. Its scope is large, to say the least.
It’s overthought. It strives to be credible. It’s as ethical as I can make it. It’s dark as hell. I think it’s good.
